Slip Dresses in Winter

29 November 2016

Spring/Summer 16' was the year of the slip dress ever since Kendall Jenner debuted the T-shirt/slip dress combo in April this year. I guess its something about the Kardashian clang that can make such a simple look go viral - let's be real every blogger, influencer and trend-setter was all over this look - including me! However on this occasion I wasn't influenced by the K Clang. But the 90s. Yes babes the 90s. Let's be honest the 90s was the bomb diggy and when they say fashion makes a 360... the 90s is a year I can get down with. 1. Because I'm a 90s baby (born in the 80s) and 2. it was the best decade for basically everything... Fashion. Music... shall I go on?

I purchased this slip dress ages ago from Zara. The plan was to wear it to one of the many festivals I attended paired with a white tee and biker boots. But it never made an appearance… until now.

Even though it's getting colder, doesn't necessarily mean my summer wardrobe should be eliminated. This slip dress is versatile for summer and winter. Paired with a long sleeved polo neck, some cute ass boots from office and the reoccurring forever21 longline coat that I just can't seem to let go of, it's the perfect outfit to tackle the cold… boom!

Blogging Hiatus and Snakeskin Boots

21 November 2016

I've been battling a lot with this blog recently… and yes I know I've mentioned it so many times before but I'm mentioning it again because I can. More than recently I wasn't sure I wanted to continue blogging and I even felt like picking up a new hobby, like knitting or jewellery making to fill the void. But in all honesty I didn’t want to stop blogging. I love it. I love putting new outfits together, sharing beauty tips, divulging in my latest holiday or adventure or just sharing good or not-so-good news.

Now with that being said I am the laziest hard working person I know. And if you don't know what that means let me break it down for you… I will work my ass off and give 110% in everything I do, whether it's work or leisure but give me a chill pill and I'll take in an instant. I love chilling and I'm the queen of sleep (understand that if I give up sleep or food for something it means I really care) but because I don't get it often I'm not ready to give it up - so when it comes to my blog having to sacrifice my ME time is hard work within itself. But I've realised that the only reason why it felt like hard work was because I wasn't enjoying the actual blogging anymore - it was the outcome and views/comments/likes that became the focal point.

I enjoy putting outfits together and seeing what goes with what. What suits my body type and what doesn't. Experimenting with photos and locations. That's what made blogging fun for me. So with that being said hopefully I'm back for a while and I can make this permanent. 

Have you taken an hiatus from blogging? Why? And what made you come back?  


Now... on the why you're all here.... the outfit!

It has taken me AGES to blog these insane snakeskin leather boots from JD Williams. I was gifted these few months ago and only recently managed to take these bad boys out for a spin. I also purchased this cute smock dress from asos recently and knew these boots would pair perfectly with them. I'll be the first to admit that I hate the colder months. Especially when it gets to 10 degrees my sense of fashion goes straight out of the window and I dress for the weather and I never make it cute. However this look was super simple to achieve! Slap a pair of 100 denier tights and a long line coat we're all good to tackle this horrid weather!

I feel like I have so much to catch you all up on but I'll save that for another post x
